This episode of Off-Leash Public Affairs features the range, diversity, and passion of public comments during a couple of the "Grassroots Community Workshops, Round 1" outreach meetings held in June 2007 for the Santa Barbara City General Plan Update, called Plan Santa Barbara.
This Plan SB website youplansb.org includes reports from the 60+ public meetings held so far for community workshops, individual groups, and City boards.
Most of the coverage in this video is from the public meeting held at Westside Community Center on 28 June 2007. The opening introduction by OLPA co-Producer David Pritchett also gives an update on the Process Timeline that illustrates how this complex and iterative General Plan Update process eventually will yield a Programmatic Environmental Impact Report that analyzes various alternative planning scenarios for the final General Plan adopted by Santa Barbara City Council.
